to continue the massive bond buying program to give the u.s. economy a boost. wrapping up a two-day meeting policy makers at the central bank forecast weaker growth ahead and said the fed will continue the stimulus program and keep the key interest rate at 0%. the fed's state signalled the economy continues to improve but only modestly. >>> investors poured over the statement and seemingly didn't find much to hold on to. stocks set out records yet, maybe they were just tired today and that's why they sold off. probably as good an explanation as any. the dow 61 and nasz deck off 21 and s&p lower by eight. treasury notes were low and yields sparked higher at 2.54%. >>> joining us more to talk about the fed meeting, david kelly, chief global strategist at jp morgan fund. no surprises on that fed decision. even was expecting it but there was speculation one of the reasons the marketsç stayed in the minus column was that there was speculation that maybe ben bernanke will begin this whole tapering thing before he steps down as chief any time between december and january. what do you think? >> i
is a competitive market and the concern is if this economy plateaus or doesn't continue growing at the clip it's been growing at, will they have to put more money to goose the sales? >> all right. we'll keep watching. phil, thanks so much. >>> well, it is a new month and on wall street, day one was a good one for stocks. the markets got a big boost from a surprisingly strong read on u.s. manufacturing in october. it rose at the fastest pace in 2.5 years. all major averages avoiding a third consecutive day of loses with stocks rising into the close, the dow up nearly 70 points, nasdaq added two, the s&p 500 was up five. rates on the ten-year treasury note rose steadily all session long closing up at 2.6%. >>> time for the central bank to phaseout the stimulus program. charles plauser said the feds should have begun tapering back at its meeting earlier this week. >> i thought we kind of missed an opportunity to make a small gesture to signal the fact this is a dial we can promove and adt it and fine tune it, if you will. >> he suggested setting a maximum dollar amount instead of sticking to the
bonds because the economy is still not strong enough to generate enough jobs without interest rates staying lower than they might otherwise be. the stock market's retreat and the dow gave up 62 points. the s&p dropped 4.9%, and the nasdaq declined .55% and can clearly be laid right at the fed's feet. that's because until the fed releases the down beat statement crafted after the monthly meeting the average is pretty much even keel and after a moment's hesitation. the sellers -- >> sell, sell, sell. >> overwhelm the market and stocks began to plummet. detailing and explaining a pattern of stock buying and selling that while totally counterintuitive has become the mod us operandi, and i want to game it with me. first, the stock market acts pretty sanguine in the days leading up to the fed meeting largely because we know the economy is too weak to stand up by itself. we know the fed has to continue to buy bonds to keep interest rates low, and they told us that. lower rates allow the companies to buy more aggressively and hopefully from the fed's point of view so they expand operations.

trying to figure out what the market is saying. the federal reserve said the economy is growing moderately. job growth picked up a little built. housing stumbled over the last period since their last meeting. net-net, no change. >> no change. we weren't expecting a change but it's about the data. once again the fed reiterates it's focused on the data. it has been a big day for the markets because going into the fed meeting, not much and all of a sudden we sell off after the meeting. >> both stocks and bonds. >> with rates moving higher. elbattled new health care law, president due to give a speech defending the health care law, you'll see it live in about an hour, and we'll have reaction from two people who had their insurance can delled due to the law. he can win them back? >> starbucks ceo howard schultz with be with us. he's been a big supporter of obama care. we'll get his take on the rollout problems. and then reports on their earnings in about an hour. howard will break down those numbers for us. let's not forget about facebook either. the social media giant will be report

point. because the shutdown certainly slowed the economy. it's going to skew the data. it's going to be great opaqueness to the data over the next month or so. i think the important thing to remember is although there was damage done to the economy, and we could argue how much or how little, there was damage done to the economy. the important point is it's not irreparable. as washington gets out of the way, we will see the private sector begin to work its way back. we'll see some of those trends we saw establish themselves in terms of improving economy before the shutdown, we think those trends are going to come back again. >> will washington ever get out of the way? i hope so. they're certainly not off the calendar yet. we'll see if we go through the same debacle again in february. >> i think you agree with that, rick santelli. some of the economic data we're getting -- you want them out of the way, don't you? >> listen. it all depends on what your definition of out of the way is. i would like to address mr. bernstein's comment. i'm not seeing chicago is going to reflect the enti
terribly illustrative. a lot ofen doing a studying of the united states economy going back to revolutionary times. there were a lot of periods where the economy was very volatile. you were so many booms and busts in the 19th century and so on. the last 25 years, from 1890 to from was very sehgal -- 1990 22 thousand seven, was very stable. 1990 to 2007 was very stable. if you never owned a house you might go from a time when you live alone in a single apartment to where you have to have a roommate back to where you can afford a single apartment and back and forth depending on what is.economy if people lose that resiliency they feel there is no opportunities to get ahead. that is basically what i want to say. journal.comnational -- but he railed along the way -- schedule got derailed on long the way. the senate would tackle a number of nominations. the employee nondiscrimination act and drug legislation -- one clarification, the houses back next week. they will return after the veterans day holiday. sandy is joining us from phoenix, arizona. you say this is not the land of opportunity. why is
a cycle to our economy. we have a cycle to the market. fifth years can give you some nasty things. the fifth year of the 1982 market brought you the crash. we got five years out of the market through '95 to '99, and then we stepped off the curb and we ended in the 2000 dotcom bubble bursting. >> from a practical standpoint, what does that mean? when you say be cautious, what are you saying? are you saying selling into the rally? raising cash? what? >> i'm saying you have to be defensive in your choices here. of your risk money, i think you have to have a very significant amount of it in defensive position. so, what i might do is be looking at value stocks as opposed to growth stocks. i might be looking at midcaple and large cap value stocks. i might be looking at staples, the consumer stams have been leading, but only for about a month. those are traditionally a defensive place to be. >> david, you think we're in a phase where a lot of what's going on is performance-chasing. we've already had great performance in the he cequity markets for the last few years. now people want to ge

.s. economy. to give away on the margin everything for nothing it's just can't work. connell: let's talk about the economics of it for a second. the conversation we had, in terms of advising the president, and the other for mitt romney. the argument is look at what mitt romney worked on in massachusetts, it works. >> i don't think it does work very well in massachusetts. it is one state with one set of policies. that i don't think makes sense, but at least it is just one state. when you are combining hawaii with alaska. you've got all these diversions and what people want. you cannot make them all happy. that is why the market works so very well, they are transparent, people can design what they want. and people have a right to be wrong. they have a right to not get enough insurance or get too much insurance. dagen: i think people like free better than choice. if you look at "the new york times" today, a large piece of millions of people could get their premiums completely covered if they take the lower-cost plan just by the subsidy. that is a lot of winners for people not having to pay out-of

for the economy to improve and the situation to improve. i don't see it anytime soon. with that being the case sitting here in the s&p futures behind me opening up on a new record high again. stuart: thank you, i'm glad you dealt with that fast. the real action is elsewhere, it's not at the fed, it's on the big board and it's at apple. first of all, the big board. dow jones industrial average opening 11 points higher. 15,580. wait until we get going, you could see a bigger gain than that. apple, profits were lower and they made 7 1/2 billion dollars in 13 weeks. 33.8 million iphones shipped. 14 million ipads and look at the stock in the very, very early going. that thing is up 7 or $8. let me remind you, when those numbers, the profit numbers came out at 4:00 yesterday afternoon. the immediate reaction was the stock went down 15 to $20 per share and that's now been rethought and we're up $8. almost $9 at 538. shah galani is here and liz macdonald is here. first, shah, to you. apple looks like a terrific fourth quarter as they run up to the holiday period. they have he got interesting products.
's critical, obviously, to the fed and to the economy. adp number out this morning, not so great. let's check in with you at the nyse. >> you're absolutely right, and we will get to that but we want to start, ty, with the fireworks on capitol hill as kathleen sebelius goes before the house energy and commerce committee. bertha coombs is on the case on capitol hill. over to you, bertha. >> sue, the hearing lasting more than three and a half hours and members of congress usually a little more def ren shall to a cab meth member but they did hit secretary kathleen sebelius hard on a number of issues. she started out by apologizing and taking responsibility for the website nurse and it's improving every day. clearly there have not been enough but she said none of the contractors who said they raised red flags said the problems warranted delaying the october 1st rollout. when pressed by congresswoman marcia blackburn about some of those critical late decisions that may have contributed to the failures and who made them in her staff sebelius said ultimately the buck stopped with her. >> i'm not poin
difficult for the market. so i think we have to be careful in here. the economy is moving along, but it's kind of like a jalopy. swerving all over the road. moving slowly, still moving forward. >> one of the big stories of the day, rick santelli, was the backup in yield. tell us what happened in the market today. >> it really was more yesterday than today. even though we've held it. if you look at a two day chart it really says it all. yesterday after the statement, we dropped down to a 247 yield. a very significant technical level. 38% retracement of the move in rates which monitored 136 basis points from may to september. having that hold and basically settling up at 2.55, i think is significant. if you look at the month of october from the vantage point of treasuries, 10-year note yields the last day in september were 2.61. we've only shaved off basically a handful of basis points. the big story is, you need to factor this in, is that europe went from the disaster to stabilization. but do we get overly optimistic? 12.2 unemployment in the ing aggregate eurozone. maybe a week from tod
-year treasury usually tracks the nominal growth rate of the u.s. economy. it's 2% real and 1.5-2% inflation. so i think the ten-year treasury yield is heading up. and i think if you hold treasuries or utilities or telecommunications stocks, you know, you're going to be affected negatively by the rise in yields. liz: from an investment stand point, what keeps you up at night lately? >> what keeps me up at night lately is a nonrecurring event, so-called gray rhino, you know? something that's very dangerous but hard to see in the bush. so it could be another terrorist attack, it could be the, some serious pollution problems in china, it could be iran deciding they're not going to negotiate on their nuclear program or syria not turning over all of its chemical weapons. but all those things seem to be going well now. so the background factors seem to be favorable. liz: let me bring it back to the federal reserve. when they do decide to begin tapering, will it unravel these markets? >> well, yeah, you got a good glimpse of it in may when bernanke just hinted that he might do some tapering. why are th
concerns the strong ism, good news for the economy, concerns the fed might start tapering as early as december. take a look at interest rate. the ten-year yield has been moving up the last several days. moving up again today as you saw, moved up around 1:00 as we heard news of the shooting. today the market much more defensive tone. you have utilities and health care stocks among the leaders. guys, back to you. >> thank you, bob. we'll be checking back. as we proceed on "closing bell" today. >> certainly an interesting day. we'll be following the developments out of l.a.x. the markets are about to close in about half an hour. with that much time to go, about 15,606 on the dow. the s&p up by just four points. >> much more on the shooting at l.a.x. as we continue our coverage for this friday. ♪ ♪ hey [ male announcer ] when we built the cadillac ats from the ground up, to be the world's best sports sedan... ♪ ...people noticed. ♪ something like a phenomenon, baby ♪ ♪ you're something like a phenomenon ♪ [ male announcer ] the cadillac ats, 2013 north american car of the
. if the economy can get along, you can add 2.6 and get a home mortgage at 4.6 they're not about to give away anything on the bond market. i think that's why rates have stayed, other than when politicians messed things around in the middle of october, we're sitting at 2.6 and i think so the bond market says, we're not going any lower than this. >> we saw a pretty good spike last week. people were worried last week but there's always a cap. >> i think the cap is if this economy can adjust and move homes, which we're not forming households we're off about 300,000 in terms of hos hold formation. if we can get household formation back, we'll see progress. i think rates -- the bond market is saying we're not going anywhere. you can't talk us down any more fed chair. we see the rates coming. we know they're rising. >> what do you think? >> just given where how much rates rose on the threat of taper, that i don't think janet yellen, if she is, in fact elected as fed chair, is going to go anywhere close to pulling back too quickly. she's going to error on the side of being sl
and there was no reason. >> think about what the economy was doing in 1999. the u.s. was coming off a period where we had reasonably strong economic growth, the unemployment rate was probably below 5%. it's not necessarily the behavior of the market necessarily, even though there are signs of consistency, it's more the fact we've still got the unemployment rate up above 7% and there's a sense the economy is just not clicking. >> i think it's poetic, that the money section in "usa today" "is the fed inflating a stock bubble," just as we're finally getting to a tapering -- did you hear plosser today? >> saying he wants to cap the signs of the balance sheet. >> he wants a number on the balance sheet. we're back to that. >> well, look, i don't know. i know too many people who own stocks and they're actually happy that they made money. i can't begrudge them. it's been a great time. the fed wanted the wealth effect to come up. all i can say is what has congress done to help the economy. what has the president done? they can't even build a bridge these guys. >> that's why the fed's the only game in town. >> the
